What's Happening Now

'The Simpsons' renewed for Seasons 29 and 30 making it the longest running scripted prime-time series in history

FOX's long running "The Simpsons," becomes the long-running animated series in history and largest number of episodes for any prime-time scripted television show ever, breaking the record previously set by "Gunsmoke" (635).

"Take that 'Gunsmoke!' You lost a race you didn't even know you were running!," said Homer Simpson.

Having recently marked its 600th episode, "The Simpsons" debuted in 1990 and remains one of the most groundbreaking and innovative entertainment franchises, recognizable throughout the world.

On the next all-new episode, "There Will Be Buds," airing this Sunday, November 6 at 8:00 p.m. on FOX, Homer (Dan Castellaneta) gets roped into coaching the kids' lacrosse team with Milhouse's dad, Kirk (Hank Azaria), who is in desperate need of a friend. When Kirk gets too clingy, Homer vents about how much of a loser he is. Kirk overhears his rant and disappears, right when the team needs him most: the championship game.

"The Simpsons" is a Gracie Films Production in association with 20th Century Fox Television. James L. Brooks, Matt Groening and Al Jean are the executive producers. The Gracie Films Worldwide Brand Division develops and produces the licensed content for the series. Visit "The Simpsons" website at simpsonsworld.com.
